West Midlands Police officer seriously injured after being hit by car
A police officer suffered serious leg injuries – and has to undergo surgery – after a crash in Oldbury.
The special constable was at the scene of a separate collision on the Wolverhampton Road in Oldbury just after 10.30pm last night with a colleague when he was struck by a passing car.
The 52-year-old officer sustained multiple fractures to his leg and remains in hospital where he will undergo surgery today.
The 59-year-old driver of the vehicle was arrested at the scene on suspicion of dangerous driving.
She has been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
It is the latest incident where a West Midlands Police officer has been injured recently.
A spokesman for West Midlands Police said: "Once again we have seen one of our police family injured in the line of duty, and in this instance one of our special constables, who give their time voluntarily to help protect the public.
"Our thoughts are with him and we wish him a speedy recovery."
